Paints are becoming a more popular tool for finishing ceramic work, particularly for pieces that do not come in contact with food (such as beads, jewelry, buttons or sculptural forms). Paint can be applied to bisqueware or unglazed pots that have undergone a higher-temperature firing. Additionally they can be used on work in combination with glazes to enhance the final result of your work. Paints are an easy and affordable way to introduce a metallic look to your ceramic work, for example - for a beautiful metallic sheen without the price tag of expensive luster glazes, try one of our Rub-N-Buff kits. For beautiful metallic colors in a wide variety of tones, try our acrylic paints by Duncan.
